Audi A4 SE With Optional 18" 9-Spoke Alloys

Popular Audi compact proves to be the most cost-effective premium contender for business users

The perfect premium compact saloon for business users could very possibly be the latest Audi A4 1.9 TDI (130PS) SE, as a rapidly increasing number of executives calculating the best possible balance between running costs, specification and performance are discovering.

Now available with the additional benefit of a recently improved SE equipment package offered free of charge until June 30th, the A4 1.9 TDI (130PS) remains the most attainable premium executive saloon of its kind at £19,965 OTR. It is also acknowledged by fleet sector analysts as the most cost effective compact executive contender overall, helped by an outstandingly low CO2 output of 151g/km which gives it the lowest benefit-in-kind taxation burden in its class* (£1,426 for a 40% tax payer in 2003). Running costs are also lowest in class at 34.7 pence per mile**, as is depreciation over 3 years or 60,000 miles**.

Thanks to a sophisticated pump-injector fuel injection system that permits extremely efficient fuel combustion, the turbocharged 1.9-litre TDI engine provides the A4 with 130PS and an impressive maximum of 310Nm of torque. It enables a 0-62mph time of 9.9 seconds and a maximum speed of 130mph, and gives the A4 the potential to cover up to 50.4 miles per gallon (combined cycle).
